Hello, I am Lea!

I am an interactive designer with experience working as an in-house designer at a coaching firm and a researcher at a research institute.

 

I specialize in interactive design for both web and mobile solutions. My focus is on creative design solutions, problem-solving, user experience, and design research. 

I am looking for an opportunity to grow my design perspective and help people through visual solutions. 

I grew up in Seoul, Korea, and built most design experience from there. I am always eager to learn a new perspective and that led me to this country, Canada. 

I've been working on graphics & web design, research for over 5 years now. In addition to working as a freelancer, I've worked at a coaching firm (Hanscoaching) as an in-house designer and researcher at Korea Culture Tourism Institute. 

I value people with honesty, transparency, and trust more than anything, and like to share my thoughts. As an over-thinker, I like to organize my thoughts by creating things like interior design, DIY projects, drawing, and cooking.
